Time to prepare for the festive season

With less than six weeks to Christmas, it's time to get organised. Presents must be purchased and wrapped, but more importantly have you booked your nails, brows and waxing appointments yet?

I'd highly advise you start booking as I have never seen so many people so super organised. With being locked down for so long people really are looking forward to Christmas this year. It might be their first time out meeting people in a long time so you really want to look your best and more importantly - feel your best. A bit of pampering can be so relaxing and balancing, and just what you need - but don't leave it until the last minute as appointments are filling up fast.

This year so far eyelash lifting is the number one sought after treatment and a patch test is required. It works on lifting the natural lashes and is suitable for all ages. It includes tinting to darken the lighter hairs which gives a real pop to the eyes.

Eyebrow lamination is number two at the moment and works extremely well on older ladies' brows which might have lightened during the hormonal changes through the menopause. The treatment itself helps to straighten the hair and lift and sculpt them into position. It includes tinting also.

The Gelish two-week manicure is a fantastic way to have your nails done for both Santa and the New Year. Some clients start in early December with their first set and by the week before Christmas get the second set so they have a bit of length.

With party nights out we will have to put on the make-up again, and it always goes on better with fresh skin. Book a detox facial in November and your skin will thank you for it. It will help peel off the layers of dead cells with salicylic acid, detox the peptides, and gives the deepest hydration with hyaluronic acid to promote anti-ageing and collagen production. Your make-up will glide on and you will be glowing for all the family snaps.

To book in for your Christmas appointments, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
